Needing a miracle, Marvel has put a lot into Generations. Yes, the event after the event currently going on (and extended because we need that tenth issue of Secret Empire BAD!) that they promised us wasn't an event, but we're just gonna call it for what it is.
What we know of the Rebirth event is basically a return to basics meat and potatoes, the possible end of "rage-filled" storytelling that's been the Marvel way since Avengers Disassembled, and as the title implies it'll involve legacy with the past and present heroes teaming up (though how we still don't know since some are dead or worse Nazis) for an adventure that'll go with the new status quo.
Here's the covers and creative teams for all but Ms. Marvels (other than G. Gordon Wilson will be writing it) the Iron (Brian Michael Bendis is writing this with Marco Rudy on art) one-shots and Nova-- oh wait. Right... Okay, what about the Ghost Riders-- dammit. The Venoms-- oh. Wait, I got it! Spider-Girls-- nah now I'm just being utterly ridiculous. No one at Marvel cares anymore of their still longest lasting female hero. Just us small select fans who keep hoping they remember Mayday and Anya or even Spider-Gwen. Um, there's gonna be a Generations Wave 2 right?
Okay, of my fooling here's the covers and creative teams what we know:

So readers, do you care? Or has Marvel burned the bridges too much, or are you waiting to see more? Like a price point? A $2.99 price point? Or a preview? Or a hope for better writing?
